    Morning all,

    I’ve succumbed to curiosity and am looking for a camping quilt for the back of the van as an alternative to a sleeping bag. Preferably something 4 season but also not earth shatteringly spendy.

    TIA ūüôā

    If it’s for in the back of a van isn’t that also known as a duvet.

    Plus 1, just get a duvet. Saying ‚Äúquilt‚ÄĚ makes you sound like my granny when sheets and blankets started being ousted in sleepy old Britain about 45 years ago.

    For Duvets, it’s got to be German. Proper big single duvet, 220cm long…

    We use the big square cotton covered decathlon sleeping bags as duvets when it’s warm enough. Much nicer than nylon y bags

    20tog duvet will. Add a wool blanket if you want. That will do you for anything you will get in the UK and beyond in a van coupled with a good mattress.

    In granny terms, a quilt is a padded throw / overblanket. A duvet is a ‚Äėcontinental quilt.‚Äô

    eeek I can remember as young DoD kid the family getting our first continental quilts from the new Bristol Carrefour hypermarket where we dined on chilli con carne and carafes of wine(while not me). It was very European and er probably 45 yonks ago ūüôĀ

    TBH I thought of a quilt as an open sleeping bag type ultralight back/bike packing thang.

    It has taken on that meaning due to the us use of the term. But if you’re in a van go comfort and with the thickest duvet you can find plus some proper blankets
